Fill up your cellar with this selection of Natural Reds Wines. This mixed case includes of the following wines:

3 bottles x Markus Altenburger Blaufränkisch Vom Kalk 2020 (Burgenland, Austria)
Red | Blaufränkisch

Grown on calcareous loam, the Blaufränkisch Vom Kalk is down-to-earth: fruity without being too superficial, persistent without being too demanding. The wine is produced without the help of technical or chemical tools, spontaneous fermented on the must, and matured primarily in large old wooden barrels. It is the house wine, the neighbourhood wine, the friendship wine – one that everybody wants to pour in the glass – a perfect meal companion or to be enjoyed solo with a good conversations and silent thoughts.

High-toned, bright, black cherry in the nose leading to a nice density despite its slight frame. Lushly-fruited and filled with tart fruit skin, cherry pit bitterness, ginger spice, and saline, pungent, and chalky mineral nuances.

2 bottles x Punset Neh! Langhe Rosso 2018 (Piedmont, Italy)
Red | Barbera, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo

91 points by Wine Align

This red is called 'Neh! after a popular Piedmontese slang used to finish a sentence, similar to 'eh. It is a blend of Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo, the local red grapes in Piedmont. This wine has deep fruity aromas with red summer fruits, like black cherry, strawberries and raspberries. The colour is dark ruby and the wine shows good structure, acidity and medium body with a distinct earthiness.

Pairing suggestion: Punset Neh! is an everyday wine, perfect with all kinds of food and even by itself. Uncork this bottle any time and enjoy it!

4 bottles x Cantine Barbera Lu Cori Menfi DOC 2020 (Sicily, Italy)
Red | Nero d'Avola 

A fascinating Nero d’Avola with a spicy and lively saline character, this wine truly represents the intriguing Sicilian terroir where it is produced. The wine has a bright ruby red color with intense shades of violet; its bouquet shows scents of mulberries and raspberries with a touch of light spices. On the palate it is fragrant and full, with soft velvety tannins that shape a vibrant, Mediterranean personality.

Pairing suggestion: Match this fresh red with rich meats, any kind of pasta with tomato based-sauces and pizzas!

About the Winery

Cantine Barbera

Cantina Barbera is located in the Menfi Coast, on the west coast of Sicily. The vineyards are about one mile from the Mediterranean Sea: an uncontaminated deep blue sea, facing South, where low cliffs and sandy dunes create a beautiful environment protected by the Belice River Natural Reservation Fund.

A third generation farmer, Marilena Barbera farms the Inzolia that her grandfather planted in the 20's, just as she attends to the native varietals that are the new frontier of her own generation: Perricone, Nerello, Alicante, Nero d'Avola and Grillo. Marilena makes her wines praticticing organic farming and natural winemaking, while paying utmost respect to Menfi's terroir.

"At the winery, I chose to work only with spontaneous fermentations and to adopt non invasive winemaking practices, in order to respect the unique personality of Sicilian native grape varieties and the beautiful land to which they belong."
